Following a confusing past few days, Blue Springs (Mo.) High receiver Keeston Terry told Monday that he has committed to play for the Kansas University football team.

“A couple of weeks ago I de-committed from Nebraska,” Terry told the Web site. “After that, I thought about it and decided I wanted to commit to Kansas. I felt comfortable there and knew a lot about them since my parents went there.”

Terry, whose father, Doug Terry, is a former KU and Kansas City Chiefs defensive back, originally committed to play at Nebraska before recently re-opening his recruitment. Monday, despite comments from his high school coach indicating the receiver’s recruitment remained open, Terry announced his intentions to play at KU.

As a junior last season, the 6-foot-2, 179-pound Terry caught 50 passes for 900 yards and 10 touchdowns and played multiple positions for Blue Springs, which finished the 2008 season at 9-2.

According to, Terry also received offers from Big 12 schools Missouri and Kansas State, as well as Stanford, Wisconsin and Illinois.

The past week has proven fruitful for Kansas football recruiting.

In addition to Terry, offensive lineman Zach Bolton (Houston), kicker Justin Castor (Arvada, Colo.) and defensive end Jimmay Mundine (Denison, Texas) each has given the Jayhawks nonbinding oral commitments, according to Rivals.

Perhaps the most prominent addition came in the form of Bolton, the 18th-ranked offensive guard in the Class of 2010 who attends the alma mater of current KU receiver Johnathan Wilson.

“(Wilson) has always talked highly of the program and how well they take care of you,” Bolton told Rivals. “His mother, Marcie Thompson, is my mentor. I trust them, and they have had nothing but good things to say.”
